Gene Therapy Using CAR T-Cells Could Provide Long-Term Protection Against HIV

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

Through gene therapy, researchers engineered blood-forming stem cells (hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells, or HSPCs) to carry chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) genes to make cells that can detect and destroy HIV-infected cells. These engineered cells persisted for more than two years

Want to Beat Antibiotic-Resistant Superbugs? Rethink That Strep Throat Remedy

Georgia Institute of Technology

Antibiotics could become nearly useless by mid-century against intense infections due to bacteria evolving antibiotic resistance. And alternatives haven't been able to replace them. It's time for a rethink: Try reducing antibiotic use for small infections and find alternate treatments for them. Save antibiotics for the big infections.

Scientists Describe How Solar System Could Have Formed in Bubble Around Giant Star

University of Chicago

Scientists with the University of Chicago have laid out a comprehensive theory for how our solar system could have formed in the wind-blown bubbles around a giant, long-dead star. Published Dec. 22 in the Astrophysical Journal, the study addresses a nagging cosmic mystery about the abundance of two elements in our solar system compared to the rest of the galaxy.

Easter Island Had a Cooperative Community, Analysis of Giant Hats Reveals

Binghamton University, State University of New York

Analysis of giant stone hats found on Rapa Nui, Chile (Easter Island) provides evidence contrary to the widely held belief that the ancient civilization had a warrior culture. According to a new study conducted by a team of researchers, including a professor at Binghamton University, State University of New York, these stone hats suggest that the people of Rapa Nui were part of a supportive and inclusive community.

Research Reveals How Diabetes in Pregnancy Affects Baby’s Heart

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

Researchers at the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA have discovered how high glucose levels - whether caused by diabetes or other factors - keep heart cells from maturing normally. Their findings help explain why babies born to women with diabetes are more likely to develop congenital heart disease.

Alzheimer’s Damage in Mice Reduced with Compound That Targets APOE Gene

Washington University in St. Louis

People who carry the APOE4 genetic variant face a substantial risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease. Now, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have identified a compound that targets the APOE protein in the brains of mice and protects against damage induced by the Alzheimer’s protein amyloid beta. The findings suggest that APOE could potentially be a target for treatment or prevention.
